Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, we have all of the holidays facing us with all sorts of good food and sweets. According to Wallet Hub, North Dakota ranks fairly high on the obese states in the country.

In 2015, I published a story, stating North Dakota was obese, and fast-forward two years and we haven't made much progress.

According to Wallet Hub, North Dakota ranks at # 19 in the fattest states list.  Wallet Hub used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The fattest states in the country are-

  1. Mississippi
  2. West Virginia
  3. Tennessee
  4. Arkansas
  5. Louisiana

And the least fat states are Montana, Hawaii, Utah and Colorado.

Now, if only I could reach that apple pie!
